ignorance is a defense when it's your job to know. given the trend line we're seeing here, bob, in so many different instances, it's unfortunately, a culture, i think independent administration that it's okay to cover these things up and part of it has to do with the intimidation that the administration is using against some of its critics. you see that in the ap story. you see that in the tea party story. there are so many common elements here. so i really think it is a culture of cover-ups, and intimidation that is getting the administration in so much trouble. >> schieffer: let me just ask you this-- do you have any evidence, evidence-- not hearsay or any of that-- any evidence that would contradict the president's statement that he didn't know anything about this until two weeks ago? >> all i know is what i read in the press and listen to you and other members of the news media say. what we do know is that secretary lew of the treasury secretary, shortly after he was confirmed in march, said he knew about this. and then the president-- i'm talking now about the i.r.s. scandal-- and the
the airplanes there, could they come, could they be there in time? he already indicated that the defense attache told him was not possible. any report is subject to being reviewed, to being criticized and all the rest. i welcome that, but i don't yet see it. >> and the main question -- i want to play something for you. and this was greg hicks, former deputy chief of mission in libya. and he was asked about could help have been sent. he mentioned this group that was in the embassy in libya that wanted to go to the mission in benghazi. here's the question. >> how did the personnel react at being told to stand down? >> they were furious. i can only say -- well, i will quote lieutenant cornell gibson, he said this is the first time in my career that a diplomat has more [ bleep ] than somebody in the military. >> here's the bottom line question, were there military assets anywhere that could have saved these men? the implication here is that there was, that possibly lives did not need to be lost had the military acted more quickly. >> that group would have arrived after everybody had left the benghaz
like making health care actually work, creating millions more jobs. he also needs a defensive team that enforces solid, honest progressive action by the government agencies and troubleshoots problems. he shouldn't have to read in the paper that some agency is screwing up, shouldn't have to learn what the justice department is up to. offense and defense, he needs a team that will deliver on both. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lied, republicans creating so-called scandals instead of jobs. republicans are on a mission to make a scandal out of anything. but at a factory in baltimore today, the president made it clear that he's not using controversy to play politics. instead, he's trying to try to fight for jobs in the middle class. >> i know it can seem frustrating sometimes when it seems like washington's priorities aren't the same as your priorities. i know it often seems like folks down there are more concerned with their jobs than with yours.
here, not always on the defensive as they were early last week. >> jamie: my discussion with you is somewhat academic, coming up next segment we'll have the trust in government. one of the questions i want to ask you, for those sitting at home following this for the first time, maybe they watched the hearings that were so compelling -- they may be asking themselves about the appointment of the person that we now know was in charge of overseeing this exemption scrutiny to a greater degree, to on now be the one to implement sara ingraham, of course. to now see the overimplemented it's of obamacare that many people will be relying on their future healthcare. is that a red flag? is eight red herring? what is it? >> it could be a red flag depending on what the investigation turns out to be. what did she know. did she know a lot and not tell congress. was he is in the middle of this. you have to have the trust of the irs as well as hhs as they implement this big, huge landmark law. the obama administration knows that. if she is tainted by this scandle, that is something they are going
to be hammered for this. they did this in a defensive, calculated way. their initial response to protect themselves. mr. miller did not help himself today. >> my favorite part of mr. miller's testimony if there is a greatest hits today was when he was asked by members of congress, did you intentionally mislead us? and his answer was, he didn't mislead them. but he answered your questions as they were asked. that's not a really good answer to give members of congress. >> you want to give them the tr nothing but the truth in its proper context. >> their job is oversight. they should be allowed to do it. >> it's interesting though. lois lerner when she released it at the american bar association, first rule of bad news damage control, if you got bad news you release it. don't wait for your enemies to get ahold of that. and that is clearly on their mind. thanks very much. >>> up next, the powerball jackpot. hitting $600 million. and it's climbing. if no one beats the odds tomorrow it could be approaching, yes, $1 billion. >>> also coming up glamour, glitter, and bling. while movie stars wer
, whether the defense department could have been gone into benghazi after there was word of an attack. former secretary of defense, bob gates, he talked about that on "face the nation" this morning. take a listen. >> i think my decisions would have been just as theirs were. we don't have a ready force standing by in the middle east, despite all the turmoil that's going on, with planes on strip alert, troops ready to deploy at a moment's notice. >> this is a former defense secretary. congressman, do you think that enough was done to save lives in benghazi? >> no, there's two points here. number one, this was the anniversary of 9/11 and libya was one of the hottest spots in the world. there should have been forces on standby. there should have been forces ready to respond, to anything that would come up. secondly, on top of that, you had the first attack, and then you had a seven-hour law between that and the second attack, which ended up killing more americans. i don't know why after the first attack, and the evidence that, look, this was a hot area, there's some stuff going on, whatev
and collection of ap phone records and benghazi all have the president and his party pretty much on defense the president had to make a public statement essentially calling on the acting irs commissioner to step down a month before he actually was supposed to. the investigations are revealing more information every day. democratic leader harry reid had to express his outrage. that does not mean reid or hill democrats will suddenly stop pushing the obama agenda. they are however rightfully worry that obama's second term blues and scandals will hurt them. >> anytime you're in a the second term of a presidency, you know the party begins to be defined by that president and, you can look at george w. bush. you can look at bill clinton, that, you know, afterwards, it took some time for the party to get a new identity outside of their leader. >> reporter: well, even before the irs admitted its misconduct and justice department admitted secret collection of ap phone records democrats were beginning to worry where the obama era will ultimately leave them. a senior official in bill clinton's second t

to the september 11th attacks in benghazi, libya has the white house now on the defensive. that's where we'll start right would you now with the republican leading the investigation into these matters, the chairman of the house oversight committee, derril issa. >> obviously this is an important issue to the american people. >> let's get into it then because i want to know where you're going. congressional leaders including yourself are calling on the white house to release more e-mails related to all of the communication and reaction to the benghazi attacks the very next day. what are these e-mails? what's in them, and do you think the white house is holding something back? >> david, there are three zing areas that haven't been answered. first of all, a full understanding of why urgent requests repeatedly for more security before the attackses were denied. we've had statements that it wasn't about money, but at the same time, people are asking for more security. they got less. the british ambassador has two assassination attempts, and yet we keep a facility that was not able to withstand even a few
to newdow highs have been very defensive, low-growth sectors, right? kind of adding to this on the about the tapering of qe, the fed probably has the to taper on the tapering discussion. because what's missing here is the issue of how do you cause a great rotation? you stop the bid in bonds. but if you cause that stopping of the bid in bonds, if that results in an accelerated interest rate increase, the market is not going to like that. so we have to be very wary of the speed of interest rate movements going forward, aside from just the level. >> there's a difference also between pulling back on qe and raising interest rates. the fed could pull back on qe. that doesn't necessarily mean that rates all of a sudden are going to shoot up. it doesn't mean that they're going to raise rates by pulling back on qe. >> but if they do pull back on qe, the dollar probably rises. we saw that move the last eight days as this discussion on tapering has taken place. a rising dollar is deflationary. the fed doesn't want that. the fed wants inflation. every other emerging market is lowering rates, but we

the white house proved weak? it's trying to defense the indefensible and proved even weaker. no heart what comes of these various embarrassments, this much is clear: the president's best excuse was that he was, well, out of the loop. he has gone from hands-on to hands-off, but its still going to hit his approval numbers hands down. because it is hard to pound the pulpit when you're taking a pounding in the polls. so is big gov being given the big shove? and will the political fallout have money for democrats falling short? let's ask melissa francis and bob cusack. melissa, what do you think? >> i think that every time we see a scandal like this, i want to say these are the folks you put in charge of your health care, and how do you feel about that? i mean, that is really terrifying, and i used to say have you been to the dmv lately, have you seen what's going on at the post office, why uld you put these people in charge of your health care? now we have an exact example. this sarah hall ingram who is in charge of the office that decided on the tax-exempt status, she is now in charge of the

in independent investigations and don't give the appearance of doing so. >> how good a defense is that? how good a defense is that? >> i think it's a great defense in terms of the department of justice. you're exactly right. it's an appearance he was meddling in that investigation, it would be improper. with the other investigation, the i.g.'s investigation into the irs, i think he came out saming to not know what was going on at the irs. reports we heard about. issa had known about this i think a year ago and there have been reports in papers about this investigation, about this possible, a possibility of improper behavior. i think the takeaway for the irs, if you read that i.g. report, it is -- there is not sense of this was necessarily political, but it appears it was incompetent and i think you will have tea party groups on name dropping this scandal. some call it scandal. some say it's scandal sort of in quotes, bufrt i think this is going to be something that's motivating and what you learn from mitch mcconnell's interview there is that they are prepared to have this narrative where the ir

rates, and since interest on the national debt is the third largest category of spending after defense and social spending, the government thinks it's great to have low interest rates, but the fed can't do everything, and we're seeing proof of that. there's a lot of money in the economy, and businesses are so worried about what will happen with business and insurance, and consumers are so worried about jobs, they're not buying houses with low mortgage rates, so the money has to go somewhere, and it's been going right into the stock market. that's why you see the markets soaring when the economy and jobs struggling to grow, but not keeping up with what is going on. the market is a function of a lot of money looking for a home, and the stock market is home. >> nomi, a rise used to mean a rise in the economy. the dow is at 15,000, but the economy is struggling to grow at barely 2.5%. why the disconnect? >> first of all, the money that goes into the stock market that terry was talking about is cheap money that is funneled in through institutions, through banks, through some of the korpshzs
